Prompts and writing commss/journals. There was supposed to be other things too but it's mostly prompts and writing lists at this point.

Writing projects )
whatawaytoburn: ([WC] Clearing my head)
Let me introduce you all to me to-write list. It is a collection of things that have struck me as awesome ideas or prompted things i have gotten that I need to write. I don't know when (or if) I will ever get around to writing all of them but well, I thought i would share, since I was winging about words yesterday.

This does not count the stuff that actually gets written, just the stuff I mean tot write at one point or another. Most of hwat actually gets written is spur of the moment stuff that was never actually on this list. I'm bad at referencing it, thus stuff never gets written, but I do try and keep it vaguely up to date with ideas that cross my brain/things I'e been prompted with, so yes. i thought I would share.

Original stuff that needs to get written at some point or another )

Fanfiction including Sherlock, White Collar, Cabin Pressure and Sanctuary (plus combinations of the four) )

Since I am doing prompts 9off of the prompt post, I thought I would link to it, in case anyone would like to add to it.

Prmpt poooost

Anyway, feel free to leave any sort of prompts, lyric/word/kink/phrase/pairing/whatever. I can work with just about anything. I know iI have a ton to get to but well, that is the point of doing this. So feelf ree to add to the pile

..yes, Mor. You count in this. XD <3
whatawaytoburn: ([Writing]  At work)
So, I am opening up myself for writing prompts. Anything will do, though I was thinking of original fiction before I was planing anything finish but if you happen to know something you are interested in, go ahead and prompt me and I will see what I can do.

In a couple of days, hopefully when I finish all of the prompts that are given to me, I will post links to each story and then a tip jar. You don't have to pay to read any of the stories or anything, but dropping a dollar or two in the tip jar would b lovely.

So, go ahead! Leave me any sort of prompt you would like. i can write off of pictures, words, music, whatever you'd like. Just go ahead and leave me something and I will leave you something in return.
whatawaytoburn: ([Writing] Love travels)
I've been thinking about the book that I want to write, the YA one? I have two ideas that I could use from my general storage of plots that I want to work on and then a bunch of others that I as just tossing around but these are the ones that are more developed (i.e. have characters or anything).

The first: It would not be a romance but it would very much be a YA book, I think. The daughter of Life and Death sets off on an adventure to get back her parents. On the way she meets various personifactions and things of that like. Some of them are good, some of them are neutral and some of them are dark (but not exactly 'bad', just dark in nature). They help her save her parents and keep the universe in working order.

Relationship wise, I think there could be all sorts of people in all sorts of relationship that Belle meets. The personifacations would have no reason or real desire to conform to human standards of relationships or gender or...anything really.

So yeah, that's one option.

The other is a less developed story but is very much a love story. It's about a coyote girl and a girl who had been made of stone (not a girl who had been turned into stone but one who had previously been a statue and then forced into a human body). They fall in love and wander the world together. I know there's a fox involved in this universe and the personifacation of the moon but I don't know if they get involved with the girls or not. It would be about them falling in love and navigating the human world, both together and before they met.

So yeah, I don't know, I need to figure out what I am doing. I know there's no rush or anything, I just feel like I should work on this while I have the brain.
whatawaytoburn: ([Writing] I have coffee)
So, I think I want to write a YA book.

Even more than that, I want to write YA paranormal romance.

I'm not that well versed in the genre, so I would have to do some reading first but several have the formula pointed out to me times over. (Hot boy plus clumsy girl, pus secrets, plus powers pus cliffhanger if you are shooting for a series).

I want to write a paranormal romance where the MC is confident, owning her powers and damn proud of who she is. I want the romance to be a poly romance. I want the clumsy, unsure one to maybe be the boy or maybe be someone who is just trying to disco7ver who they are, and that not be a cis person. I want powers that people k`now about and are proud of.

I want....I don't know. I just want something different. I want people to have the choice of reading a poly romance with supernatural abilities and confidence and all of that.

I don't know. I'[m still turning the idea around in my brain. I don't have any clue what it would be about and as I said, I need to read more, but yeah.

I would also take a YA paranormal romance where someone is asexual too. That would make me ahppy, The point here is that I want options, I want to give kids that window to see that it can just be more than hot boy plus clumsy girl. Just....yeah. I don't know.
whatawaytoburn: ([Writing] Non functional)
So, I've been in a writing mood lately which is not a bad thing. I've written something two nights in a row, which has not been happening as of late but I am hoping I can keep up. If not actually writing than perhaps working on something writing related. I don't know. I am going to see.

Anyway, I was wondering what sorts of programs and thins people use to help them along. I know Scrivener is popular but I can never wrap my head around it. I use PageFour myself and WriterMonkey. I know there are other programs and such out there too, plus things like Write Or Die and Written Kitten!

So yes, do you use any of those things? What things besides programs do you use? Do you have a timer that you break out every now and then? Do you have a special place you have to write in or can you write anywhere? What about reference books? What are your favorites to use?

Tell me about the things you use to hep you write! I'm curious and sleep deprived and think this could be fun to listen to. Plus you might be able to give someone else a bit of help.

Also, while I am thinking about it, talk about worldbuilding? Babble to me about how you attack worldbuilding and what resources you have on the subject. If there's any good things out there, especially for urban fantasy settings, let me know. This is in part for a friend of mine but I could use the information as well..

Music choices: Bells ringing. There are five cats around and all of them have bells on, plus my own. XD But besides that? The Magical Writing Playlist. One day i will possibly upload it, I am just lazy.

:D:D:D HIT 50K FUCK YESSSSS. This is a win, this is a total win. I'm still not winning on NaNo yet but still, I wrote 50k worth of words this month OLY CRAP!

yeah, I am kind of really thrilled about this, it makes me happy. :D:D:D

I will update on California tomorrow, I think, possibly later tonight if I am still awake but I am sleepy and lazy and want to curl up. We will see, we will see. But I defintiely want to show you guys the awesome masks [personal profile] avia made for us but I really do want to do an epic California post so yes.

Ho hum, ho hum. I just wanted to do a WC post before it got too late. So yes. Words. there have been them.

Caffeine: Couple of cups. Not too much today. There's been a lot of filling up the coffee when it's half full though.
Procrastination method of the day: Everything
Music choices: The Pixie can't Sleep. Other things too but I have had that on repeat.

I have written:
Modern!Nikola's backstory
Helen and the Autumn queen
A nice little story about Legend and History

I am only happy with one of these things (The story about Legend and History). I am at that point where I am just writing to write. I should probably stop but I am so close to 50K overall that I feel I have to keep going. After I hit it, i think I am going to take a couple days break and write small, pretty things on Tumbler for a day or two and then see how that goes.

'Cause honestly? I just....kind of feel like I hate everything. I would rather be reading other people's fics and stories than writing my own. I feel like it's a better way to spend my time becuase I have no business writing.

That is probably the need for sleep talking but whatever. I will be better and writing again tomorrow.

Music choices: Sanctuary? Why yes, Sanctuary. And other things. My big writing playlist of writingness but Sanctuary has been on for tonight. Even though I didn't write tonight

So I have not updated in a while because I have not written very much. Mreh. I am definitely in the week two slump but I am working on it! Hopefully now that we are at the end of week two, I will be out of said slump and be back in the writing mode. We will see. Even if I don't though, I have decided to eb proud of how far I've gotten and how may words I've managed to get in this amount of time.

So, here we are at week two and if I was counting my total amount of words this month, I would be SO CLOSE to finishing. But alas, I am not. Still, I am impressed with my word total and that is kind of nice.

What's not kind of nice is that I am having doubts about Is and Winter as main characters. I don't know if they should be the ones telling the story. I'm moreokay wtih Winter than I am with Is but just....Hi, these are the doubts I stat getting. I don't hate the stories themselves yet but that's becuase i've broken myself from looking back on things. I know there are a TON of mistakes in them but just...Yeah. I will wokr on that stuff later.

for now, I am just going to keep plugging along and hoping that I feel better about everyone tomorrow.

Now I am...going to see if I can sleep and, if not, then curl up with a book for a while.

Wrote more Nikola Tesla/Henry Jekyll today along with my NaNo/Ni90. I keep meaning to switch over to my *actual* backup projects but that just does not seem like it is going to happen. I also wrote a crack short thing that involved modern era!college AU Five because it makes me happy. I don't know why else.

I have a write-in tomorrow where hopefully I will get words in but, if i don't, I am still ahead, so that is okay. I am going to try and get a little more ahead tomorrow night just in case but I don't know if it is going to happen, as I am at the part of the Road Trip story I know NOTHING about. Not that I knew a lot about City exactly but I know the general gist of City whereas with Road Trip, I am going to be pulling out my Tarot cards soon and having them direct the story.

I kind of wanted to stay up and do more writing than what I got today but I am getting really fuzzyheaded and I think I am going to put on a movie or something and just curl up for a while. I dont know. We will see. I wish I had S3 of Sanctuary, cause I would put that on right now.
whatawaytoburn: ([Sanctuary Nikola is doing science!NaNO)
Guys, I do not know how to take a damn break *facepalms*

Instead of going to sleep like I should, since y'know, I am probably getting the plague. I have taken a break from writing NaNo/Ni90 and am now writing that Nikola Tesla/Henry Jekyll I wanted to start writing.

Because I fail as a cat.

Yeah, I don't' even know, guys. I don't even know.

When my head explodes and I start bleeding words, we all know why.

8will have to go adjust the wordcount totals for today when I am done.

Wrote ALL THE THINGS today. All of them. I am proud of me. I might have done this becuase I think I am getting sick but y'know, whatever. I did what I have to do. I don't care.

came out to my psych doctor and that went well which is a very nice thing. And she knew about polyamory! It made me super happy and she thinks Morgan and I are Doin' It Right which, I know I shouldn't need validation but considering my mother things it's just horrible and wrong, makes me really, really happy.

I tried to go hang out at Panera but I got a bad table and I just...was really twitchy going there, so I dind't wind up staying. I need to see if I can find a spot that I cna camp out in that is not the house though, as I would like to write in places that well, are not the house. I may try the sports ba ina couple of days and see how that works. I wish I lived near other places.

Music choices: My very small writing playlist. But it got the job done, so I don't care. I need to build it up more but I kind of stumble onto the songs, rather than am able to pick the out from my MASSIVE COLLECTION OF MUSICS.

I got my words in relatively early today and if my brain had not stated to fuck up, I probably could have gotten more. I just....no, my brain stopped working right and I gave in. I'm going to go out tomorrow and see if I can maybe get more words out if I'm at Panera and blasting my music or something. We will see.

I keep feeling bad that my Ni90 doesn't have nearly as many words as my NaNo but then I keep telling myself that its OKAY. That it is the point and I have more than what I actually nejed for Ni90, my brain is just determined to try and stress me out until I cry. *facepalms*

I have a psych doctor appointment tomorrow, so I don;t know how that is going to jive with my writing. Between that and probably doing the most writing on Anthea, assuming I go out, it will be interesting to see if it makes any sort of a difference. I'm hoping it makes a

So, I didn't do much writing during the day. I know that I should have done more but I was so tired and out of it that it just did not happen. And when I thought I would get writing done at the write-in, it...did not happen. I had a good time but there was little writing to be had.

I'm going to another write-in on Sunday in which i expect there will be proper words acquired but we will see.

I have started my Ni0- which is a good thing. I kind of hate it right now but I am going to try and push past that and hope to everything that it does not leave me wanting to cry and curl up like what happened last year. We will see, I suppose. Mrrrg.

I am oakyw with this though, as it did help me get my words, so y'know,t hat's cool. I just would have also like dot have know.

I also found out that not one but two of my characters don't actually fall into the gender binary. *shakes head* Guys This is the stuff you tell so I don't misgender you. I need to go adjust Sid's info in the cast list but I am lazy and will do it tomorrow.

I a going to start on Cityverse tomorrow hen I go to the write-in.

Now I get to try and...wind down.; This should be interesting.
